How often do they do that one?



this was the first, but I reckon it will become a yearly thing. you needed a small bike though, as bikes had to be lifted over fallen trees and obstacles, no place for a pig.

I'm looking for a second bike and this is on top of the list. Sold out till Feb apparently so lots of time to decide.




Looking for the best long distance soft off road bike with a bit of insane thrown in. S10 or Katoom? Shaft vs chain. Looking to cruise above the limit out in WA but not desert just yet.
Huge job interview Thursday. Spending my money before l earn it.

edit: I know there is nothing soft about this. Just l will only be soft roading, nothing stupid, maybe.

Yeah that one is on top of my wish list as well for next year. I reckon I need something heavier and with more hp to stop myself crashing :

Funny thing is it's not much heavier than my 660 Tenere which has no HP weight ratio at all and no top speed.
Love my 660 but it needs so much money to open it up l'm just going to go balls to the wall and get a bigger bike. 1000cc is too small so 1190 R or S10 for sure. 660 ten...... wish l knew then what l know now.

What Bully said, a great weekend down south.
Unfortunately the WR450F didn't want to play the game and refused to run soon after getting wet at the first creek crossing. Got it running at Northcliffe on Sat night, then it did it again after 30 minutes on Sunday. Some water getting into some where it wasn't supposed to was my diagnosis.
Anyway, I ended up riding Dan from Bunbury's Husaberg FE570 on Sunday, as he was pretty sore after binning the bike on Sat arvo, now that Berg sure was fun. Especially when you flick the ignition map button to WILD.
Gally and Clubby are top blokes and terrific ambassadors for off road riding.

Thanks Mrs. 3.

Might be a bit much for me Kev.
2fiddy maybe.
It doesn't matter. They'll be no 4th bike for awhile.
